As a parent, investing in your child's education is one of the best things you can do to ensure their success later on in life. One of the best ways to do this is to enroll your child in a private school from the start of kindergarten. While many parents know that there are plenty of advantages of attending private schools, including small class size and incredibly qualified teachers, they tend to forget just how varied a private school curriculum can be.
Across the country, private schools account for 24% of the nation's schools and enroll a full 10% of all PK-12 students. Here are just some of the offerings that these schools have.
Since private schools are funded independently through tuition costs, grants, and alumni and community donations, they have more money to spend on technology. With this in mind, some private schools are able to offer computer labs and personal tablets for their students to use both inside and outside the classroom. Because our world is becoming more and more dependent on technology, having these digital resources is a great way to aid the students with in-depth research on a particular subject. Not to mention, having access to technology from a young age is a great way to generate enthusiasm for the sciences when they might not have access otherwise.
In a typical public school, the children may only spend time learning about the fine arts once every few days. However, private schools are able to incorporate a variety of fine arts lessons into their class offerings every day. So if they want, your child can spend time studying music, theatre, or art and design. This is a great way for them to cultivate their skills from a young age.
While summer vacation can be great for relaxation, if a child doesn't keep up with their studies they can fall behind severely when they go back in September. So many private school curriculums have optional summer courses to keep your child on track during the summer months. Don't worry, these summer assignments aren't too labor intensive and are just enough to keep your child engaged during the break.
Due to their varied offerings, a private school curriculum can be exceptionally beneficial for any child as a way to boost their education from a young age. So enroll your child today, and they will soon outsmart you!
